For the past 2-3 weeks I've put a serious amount of time and effort into experimenting with new methods and trying to improve my odds when playing the lottery.  Most of my efforts have been in the Pick 5 area, but I've also been doing some experimentation with Pick 3 and Pick 4.

When I look back at the carnage behind me, and most importantly where my Ohio Rolling Cash 5 playing is now compared to where it was when I started, one thing is perfectly clear:  Do NOT get fixated!

Do not get fixated on any one idea, method, concept or pretty much anything else!  There were three very distinct points during the past weeks where I just KNEW I had the ultimate Pick 5 method.  But each time some little thing continued to gnaw at me and each time I went back and worked and tested and thought some more.  And each time I had a breakthrough that improved my game and showed me that I wasn't nearly as smart as I had thought I was!

My point is that each time it was important for me to keep moving... like a shark through lottery waters.  If I had put on my horse blinders a week ago and decided I had the best thing going, I would have missed my opportunity to go from a valid chance to win the jackpot once every six months or so to a valid chance to win every single day!

So don’t get in a rut.  Keep learning, testing, trying and moving.

Now, get back to work…  <g>

        Fixation is what's kept me going (those who know me would call it stubbornness). I do agree that a method has to be discarded if it keeps coming up short (no point flagellating a deceased equine).

        I come from a rigorous maths background, so I like to think I know what's worth working on and what isn't (though some people go with what they feel is 'right'). I guess it just comes down to personal experience.

          You are right,flaws drives me for

          improvement.Glad for them,better

          picker than before.Can't wait for the

          next major flaw.Since no one is 100%

          most times .I'm happy at being 75%-

          90%.But a flat 0%, its back to the

          drawing board to find the error.
